The Santa Cruz Carbon Nomad walks the line between an all-mountain trail rider and a gravity shredder, designed to go uphill just as well as it goes down. Now in its third generation, the revamped carbon Nomad frame has been completely redesigned to stay ahead of enduro racing's ever-more DH trajectory. Santa Cruz Bicycles put a lot of emphasis on the performance and ride characteristics of their VPP suspension design, with adjustability of shock rates for individual designs, superb pedaling and bump smoothing characteristics. An aggressive 65 degree head angle delivers precise downhill handling and the increased 165mm VPP suspension, with improved small bump performance, smooth's out the ride. The compact chainstays combined with an inch longer cockpit, plus a steeper seat tube angle, creates an efficient pedaling position. The new frame has all the trimmings demanded today: internal cable routing, 142mm rear thru-axle spacing, molded rubber swingarm and downtube protectors, ISCG-05 carbon tabs and a 73mm threaded BB for creak-free riding. Only compatible with single chainring drivetrain designs. 5 year warranty.
